The Wild fig is a young and vibrant cafe offering amazing cuisine and coffee, with even better sunset views along the beach at Watermans Bay, in Perth. There are a host of live events and entertainment throughout the week, making for the prefect place to socialise, grab a quiet drink, and enjoy Australian beach culture at its best. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
When you enter, you won't wait long to be seated. And if you're not awake, you can open your eyes. Modern art, that's both raw and interesting, mixes comfortably with improvised repurposed furniture. .. When you stop looking at the art on the walls without fake grass, you'll notice bowling balls as coffee table legs, suspended crates as shelves.
There are outdoor seats, and some seats inside share a small view of water and sand dunes, past the car park shaded with pines. This venue can handle a crowd, though booking in advance might be ideal. Fast professional service, with a short wait for food. Value for money, portion size and flavours are exactly balanced as they should be. The coffee blend is nice and a little too easy to drink without much bite.
Went to wild fig in Scarborough for birthday lunch. Don't try and order lunch before 12pm as they will make you wait till it hits 12 noon on the dot. We even had a 3 year old with us and they wouldn't let us order his meal, only breakfast? This was at 11.45am. Weird seeing I'm sure all the food comes from the same kitchen. Food was disappointing after all that.
If it had been at its old location, I couldn't fault the food, and only occasional questionable service. The only good thing about this dining experience was the recommended wine. Four of the mains from a meager selection had run out when we arrived at 7.30pm. With not much to choose from, I went with the filo chicken pastry, which was close to cold. Wasn't keen on sending it back but the wait staff asked what I thought. They took the meal away and said the kitchen staff could redo it but it would take too long so they could reheat it. It was barely reheated, and wasn't redressed with sauce. For a meal that included three chats and more than half a plate of uninspired salad, I was less than impressed. The olive plate was akin to a small bottle of olives poured onto a plate with too little crispy bread to complement it, and a couple of tired spinach leaves. Overall dinner was an entire disappointment, it was plain rude to not apologise for the less thanread more
